Daily (02.10.2019): Brent crude dipped by over 3% on Tuesday, on fears of weakening crude demand

Crude oil prices continued their downward evolution on Tuesday, following the news that U.S. factory data dropped to an over 10-year low in September due to fewer exports in the context of the U.S.-China trade tensions. A subsequent fall in equities market put more pressure on prices. Pessimistic manufacturing and inflation data in the Euro zone also weighed on the market. On the supply side, the declines in oil output from OPEC, Russia and the U.S. could prevent further losses. Brent crude tumbled by 3.1% to $58.89 a barrel. WTI futures traded 0.8% lower at $53.62 a barrel.

Daily (30.09.2019): European spot power prices seen in a sharp fall on Friday due to strong supply

Crude oil prices lost ground on Friday, after media reported about a potential reduction of the U.S. investment portfolio into China, raising prospects of an aggravation of the U.S.-China trade tensions. Further pressure came from a contraction in the profits earned by Chinese industrial companies in August. In addition, Saudi Arabia’s strong efforts to bring its oil output back on track sooner than expected continued to weigh on prices. Brent crude fell by 1.3% to $61.91 a barrel, while WTI futures inched down by 0.9% at $55.91 a barrel.
